Reminder: Early Bird registration ends on June 30th! 


Early-Bird registration for the upcoming PKP Scholarly Publishing Conference in 
Mexico City is available until June 30th . Be sure to register before then to 
take advantage of this reduced rate! 

The speakers and presentations have just been finalized and the PKP and UNAM 
conference committee have come up with an impressive schedule with an 
international array of OA speakers and advocacy groups represented: 

A full list of the accepted presentations are available online , as well as a 
preliminary schedule. 

Program highlights:

(UNAM), Heather Joseph (SPARC), Dominique Babini (CLACSO), and Jean-Claude 
Guédon (Université de Montréal).

In addition to the conference program, there will be a morning of 
pre-conference workshops and we will be holding an open session for all 
participants to Meet the PKP Team , on Monday August 19th . The Meet the PKP 
Team event will give a more informal opportunity to get to know some of the 
faces and people behind the Public Knowledge Project. 

Accommodations 
We have arranged a reduced rate at the Radisson Paraiso Hotel Mexico City. The 
hotel is conveniently close to the UNAM and will host a large portion of the 
conference attendees for convenience. 
There are a limited number of rooms available, so please book as early as 
possible. You will find more information on our website 


We look forward to seeing you in Mexico!
